Crickets
Contest Directions: The cheep, cheep, cheep of a cricket in the grass is the quintessential sound of summer. As I crunch over heathland in search of the elusive insect, the song fills the air, as if conjured up by a magician. My companion, Mike Coates, the warden here at RSPB Farnham Heath, beams with delight. Earlier, before setting out for the reserve, he'd warned me that the insects are rare, and might not perform on cue. "It's not so much looking, we're going to be listening mostly for the sound of male field crickets chirruping in order to attract a mate," he explained, over a mug of tea in the staff portacabin. "It's just a brilliant noise. It's like summer translated into sound - it's fantastic."

        • Really nice job. Shadowing is excellent.
        • Thanks FreakMaster. And little Elvis says "Thank you, thank you very much!"
        • Great job. I was going to do a Fred Astaire tap dancing on stage with shoes on each leg.

          Importantly too you used a cricket source not a grasshopper as many others have.
        • Thanks PS, I would have liked to have seen your cricket Fred Astaire! And yes, good cricket sources seem hard to find. I originally wanted to create the Beatles performing, but couldn't find enough good cricket sources to pull it off.
